Choosing Plants for Your Garden
One of the best things about starting a garden is that you can customize it to fit you. You can choose what to grow an how large or small to make it. You can choose the style of your garden as long as you know what type of plant or flowers to cultivate. If you don’t know what plants to plant, you’ll have to choose between three garden styles. The styles are: Tropical, Classic American and Asian. Knowing these 3 styles of gardening will make choosing plants a breeze.
Step 1: Know Your Plants
Before you start, you need to know exactly what type of plants you want. Plants may need different watering procedures. Some plants may need more sunlight than others.
To get the right watering procedure, you need to know exactly how much water your plants require. Put a ruler under the pot and wait for the water to slowly flow out of the pot to measure the amount of water. This is how you measure the amount of water that your plant requires.
The amount of sunlight that your plants require is also an important factor that you need to know. How much sunlight your plants need varies greatly depending on what type of plant you want to grow. The sun plays an important role in determining the specific amount of sunlight that your plant requires. For example, when you grow tomatoes, the sunlight requirement is more than when you grow carrots or lettuce. When you grow tomatoes, they require more sunlight than when you grow lettuce or carrots. This is because tomatoes are roots and roots can absorb more sunlight.
So with your knowledge, you can now decide which plant or flowers you want to grow.
Step 2: Select Plants
You can choose from many plants. There are some plants that can grow up to 12 inches in diameter. Some plants can grow up to 12 inches in diameter, and some plants can grow up to 5 inches in diameter. So, you can choose which plants you want to grow based on your garden’s space and the height that you want to grow. You can choose among many flowers like roses, azaleas, sunflowers, blueberries, morning glory, and the list goes on and on.
When you select among many flowers, remember to consider the sun, how much sunlight your plants need and also the amount of sunshine that is required for your plants to grow up to 5 inches.
Step 3: Water and Feed Your Plants
Water and feed your plants using organic nutrients with proper timing. Using some fertilizer which is too early may burn the roots and leaves, and other fertilizer which is too late may kill the roots and leaves.
Feed and water your plants with some nutrients after the soil warms up. Water and feed your plants daily if you want to stimulate growth. Water and feed your plants once or twice a week if you want to get smaller flowers. Or you can use chemical nutrients which may not be good for your flowers.
When you put some water and feed your plants, remember to give them a lot of water because plants may drown and starve because of too much water. Don’t give them too much water because too much water may choke them and make them die. If you are getting tomatoes, then the tomatoes will begin to grow when the soil begins to get wet and warm up. So, putting some water and feeding your plants may be based on your local weather. Water and feed may vary depending on the variety of plant and how much sunlight it needs. For example, if you are growing tomatoes, then water and feed may be every day if your plants grow more than 5 inches tall. If your plants don’t grow more than 5 inches, then water and feed may be every other day.
Feed and water your plants with some nutrients like fish emulsion and rice hull extract. These nutrients are good for your plants because they reduce the size of the flowers and fruits. Water and feed may be very late if the plant is very tall or if the plants are very thin. Or you may water and feed once or twice a week depending on the plants. If you’re getting tomatoes, then the water and feed may be on the day the tomatoes begin to grow.
If you are getting red hot sun, then water and feed your plants as soon as the soil begins to get wet. The hotter the sun, the more nutrients will be needed from water and feeding your plants. If the soil is dry, then you may water and feed after every rainy day. You may also feed and water your plants on rainy days if the soil is dry or if there is no rain. If your plants have problems absorbing the nutrients because of not enough water and the heat, then you may add a little grass fertilizer to their soil. This will make them absorb more of the nutrients. When you add a little grass fertilizer to the soil, it will make the nutrients penetrate the plants faster and make more flowers and fruits. It will also make them grow faster.
